6th Polar Marine Diatom Workshop

The Polar Marine Diatom Workshop is now open to state interest. It will take part at the idyllic Iowa Lake Lab at Milford, Iowa (USA) in August (6-10).

As Beth Cassie states in her email: "The Polar Marine Diatom Workshop is an interactive workshop that combines longer, microscope-based taxonomy and morphology sessions with shorter research talks and posters. We aim to have an integrated, participatory group of highly-experienced senior-level, mid-career, and early career scientists combined with graduate and undergraduate students. The workshop is focused on diatom taxonomy and paleoceanographic applications of diatoms from both polar regions."
